The best VALORANT crosshair settings, at the end of the day, are subjective. Whatever settings you pick for your crosshair in VALORANT will do the job - as long as it's not too big - but knowing what the popular choices are amongst pros and streamers can help you have faith in your decision. You'll likely have to tinker a little to find a VALORANT crosshair that suits you perfectly, but you can use these options as a starting point. Here's everything you need to know about the best VALORANT crosshair settings.

Best VALORANT Crosshair Settings - Where to find it

In order to access the VALORANT Crosshair settings, you will need to lick the cogwheel in the top right of the home screen and hit settings. In the middle of the top bar, you will find the field “crosshair”. Click on that one to start setting up.

Best VALORANT Crosshair Settings - General

In the category General, you get to save your crosshair profiles. This is especially handy when you think you will want to save your current one before going on the adventure of a new crosshair. Furthermore, to unlock the full potential of crosshair customisation in VALORANT, you will need to switch on “Advanced Settings” which by default are set to off. 

The best VALORANT crosshair settings which are commonly used on the general page look like this:

Use Advanced Options - On

Show Spectated Player’s Crosshair - On

Fade Crosshair with Firing Error - Off

Disable Crosshair - Off

Best VALORANT Crosshair Settings - Primary

This is where the customisation fun starts and here there are many ways which will lead to Rome. For a crosshair colour, a lot of professional players use either Green or Cyan as they most distinctly contrast themselves against most surfaces found in VALORANT. Keep in mind that for users with selective colour blindness, a different colour might be needed. 

Outlines, their opacity, and thickness will determine what the outlines of your crosshair bars look like. Not overdoing it with the thickness appears to be the way to go, judging by the setting that most pro players appear to choose for these settings. 

In terms of center dot, the vast majority of pro players have the setting switched off with only very few using only a center dot instead of the four bars. Given that you generally want to see the head of the opponent and especially on large distances don’t want your crosshair to block vision of the opponent, it appears that the four bars without Center Dot are the clear winner in usability.

Override Firing Error Offset With Crosshair Offset and Override All Primary Crosshairs with My Primary Crosshair are generally settings which are switched off. 

For the Inner Lines which you can find when scrolling down, it’s once again recommended to have Show Inner Lines set to On. The other settings are once again down to taste but generally speaking Movement Error and Firing Error are set to off in order to have a static crosshair that doesn’t distract you from aiming and won’t have much utility once you’ve figured out the shooting mechanics in tandem with movement.

To give you a better idea what some of the pro players are using, here is a select list of crosshair from some of the games most well-known and most skilled pros while giving you a wide range of ideas of what is possible.

As you can see, even pro players don’t have a definitive consensus on the best VALORANT crosshair settings but maybe this selection gave you an idea in which direction you want to explore. Arguably as long as your movement and firing error is set to off and your outer lines are as well, there’s not much you could do wrong beyond going too high up the numbers. Hit the practice range and tinker around a little.
